Trojan capturing mouse clicks?
In the ever evolving world of malware development, some wise ass developed a new trojan that is not only capturing what you type, but also where you click. I know that some financial institutions use onscreen keyboards to protect themselves against keyloggers, but with this new kind of trojan, the security offered by a virtual keyboard is pretty worthless.
"Security researchers have discovered a keylogging Trojan that captures mouse clicks as well as key strokes. PWSteal-Bancos-Q targets customers of online banking and financial institutions primarily in Brazil. However Australian anti-virus firm PC Tools warns that variants could be created to affect additional online financial sites worldwide. As well as capturing user keystrokes, PWSteal-Bancos-Q also takes snapshots of the users' mouse clicks and then sends the captured information via file transfer protocol (FTP) to the Trojan's author."
